Where I stayed
The colors of the coral, fish, and water were beautiful. See if you can picture it in your mind. The surface of the water was a swirl of brilliant blue, teal, dark green, and dark blue
As the first day ended, the sun went down in style! We had a beautiful sunset as we finished up our dinner. We were four hours away from shore, so we slept on the boat. We had a little room that had two thin bunks and just enough space to walk beside the bunks. There was a little window at the top, where we could hear the breeze and the water as we slept.
On the way back, it got a little stormy. The wind was pretty strong and it was raining. The enormous waves tossed our sailboat to and fro, up and down, side to side. It was pretty exciting. The storm didn’t bother the dolphins as they rose out of the water for us to see. A fish decided to jump out of the water and jumped all the way on top of our boat! It made a loud thump on the canvas that covered the cockpit and scared everyone inside. All the tossing of the waves made Mrs. Swearingen a little sick and she lost her lunch over the side of the boat. When we got near land, the waves calmed down a bit and we had a peaceful ride back to the wharf. We said goodbye to our new friends we had made on the boat and remembered our exciting adventures!
